Church School - Early Childhood
Welcome to the Lord of Life Early Childhood Ministry (ages 2-5/kindergarten) Church School Program.
What is Church School?
Church School is our weekend children’s ministry that runs concurrently with worship services on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Church School is designed to encourage children to seek, live and share an active faith in Jesus Christ.
What will my child learn in Church School?
All lessons follow the narrative lectionaries, which are the same lessons used in worship. Ages 3 years through 4th grade will hear the same story and basic lesson in any given week, at an age-appropriate level.
What will my child do in Church School?
Using active large group sessions and relational small group sessions, children will learn about God and develop their faith at an age-appropriate level. Each week will have a combination of music, games, Bible stories and activities.
Who will lead Church School?
You and caring parents/church members like you. In order to provide the highest quality experience for your child, we need your help. Please prayerfully consider how you will use your gifts and talents to join your child on this part of their faith journey. Visit the Ministry Team webpage to learn more about the ways you can serve and sign up online for your preferred dates.

What if my child has special needs?
We will work with you to provide the best possible faith experience for your child. Our Ministry of Inclusion offers a Buddy Program, which provides one-on-one support for children with special needs.
How much does Church School cost and what does the money go toward?
The cost for a year of Church School (September, 2013 – May, 2014) is $25 per child. This fee will offset the cost of some of the materials used in your child’s Church School class.
